As ABC president Paul Lee announced at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour, the network has developed split-season plans that will cleave runs in half, serving up each batch on a relatively uninterrupted schedule. Thus far, we have details on how three of the shows will roll out.

GREY’S ANATOMY
Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 26, with 12 episodes in a row
Returns from Winter Hiatus: Feb. 27, with 12 episodes in a row/>/>

SCANDAL
Premieres: Thursday, Oct. 3 with 10 episodes in a row
Returns from Winter Hiatus: Feb. 27, with 12 in a row./>/>

ONCE UPON A TIME
Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 29, with 11 in a row (in large part set in Neverland)
Returns from Winter Hiatus: March 9, with 11 in a row/>/>

Also, though exact episode counts were not available:

NASHVILLE
Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 25, with limited repeats and preemption
Returns from Winter Hiatus: Feb. 26, with limited repeats and preemption/>/>

REVENGE
Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 29, with limited repeats and preemption
Returns from Winter Hiatus: March 9 (the same night that Resurrection replaces another freshman drama, Betrayal, in the Sundays-at-10 slot)/>/>

Additionally, the freshman spin-off Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (Thursdays at 8) will be replaced, at least temporarily, by the new reality series The Quest starting Jan. 2.

Among the other midseason hour-longs that will temporarily replace the split-season shows, ABC has on deck Mind Games (starring Steve Zahn and Christian Slater) and Tricia Helfer’s Killer Women.

You wanted fewer repeats and multi-week breaks; now you’ve got ‘em. Do you like ABC’s plan?
